Inspired by my Christmas' blinis, and because I love quinoa and scallops, I have made a colorful Scallops with Quinoa Appetizers

I will not put quantities, because I didn't measure all of them, but you can try with your  quinoa combinations

Seared Scallops with Quinoa Appetizers 

Beautiful big scallops
Salt
Olive Oil

With a paper towel dry the scallops, and season them with salt. In a hot pan with olive oil, cook them for 3-4 minutes, and flip them to the other side, cooking them for another 3-4 minutes. Set aside.



Tomato, Thyme, and Feta Sauce

2 ripe tomatoes (chopped)
Some feta
1 garlic
Chopped thyme
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper

In a pan, heat olive oil with garlic. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper, thyme, and simmer it for 5-7 minutes. You have to reduce  this tomato sofrito to a half. Add some feta, and heat it until is melted. Place a spoon of this mix over the scallop shell, and put a seared scallop on top. ENJOY!
